About Me

CURRENT MISSION

experience the American world

ABOUT ME

Grown up in North China, I almost spent all the time in my hometown before 2007. Ever since I went to college I began to do lots of traveling, in other parts of the country, and in other countries as well. I love traveling, this is a very good way to experience new things, and make new friends. So I always look for some fresh air in each summer, when I get very bored with all the schoolwork. Sometimes I feel very shy, but I may become talkative in other occasions. I have a good sense of humor which always make people laugh.(But I often turn serious under great pressure.)

PHILOSOPHY

We must be responsible for our actions; we should not hurt others when seeking our own interests.
We all have something to learn from others, and we all have something to share with others.
Life is fair, but only relatively. We have to accept this fact, and it should not stop us from striving for a better life.
Live every day as if it were your last.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

So finally I am at home now! I can host some surfers and show them around my city(it is not far from Beijing and in fact it has the only beach around this area). I live in a hall in my university so there's no way I can host anyone. But I can meet you at the Changi airport and show you around on weekends.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

4 experiences in US...

Interests

travel: mainly budget traveling. Hope I can visit all the continents(except Antarctica) someday.
music: well I tried rock before, but it's not my cup of tea.But there' re exceptions, Beatles, Radiohead and Nickle Back.
soccer: even though seldom mentioned in US, it is popular around the world. The good thing to watch soccer here is that you never need to stay up to watch European Champions League.
I played guitar before, but finally gave up-such an instrument is not suitable for small-palm people.
I swim regularly to keep fit, but I am not very good at it.
Chit-chat with friends: I enjoy this because it is a useful way to relieve nerves.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

To go to college in another country, in which I learnt a lot, but also lost a lot.

Teach, Learn, Share

All humans have desires. Sometimes we need to control them to live a better life. Global warming is an example: we must behave responsibly and cooperate in order to protect the earth.
